Comment 4 Eido Inoue 2004-02-19 15:30:32 UTC
do you have a /dev/psaux? You may need to have gpom point to

Comment 5 Tom Wood 2004-02-19 19:22:47 UTC
crw-------  1 root root 10, 1 Jan 21 11:12 /dev/psaux
crw-------  1 root root 10, 149 Jan 21 11:12 /dev/input/mouse

"system-config-mouse --device /dev/input/mouse --emulthree
msintellips/2" doesn't help.

Changing /etc/sysconfig/gpm to have DEVICE="/dev/input/mouse" doesn't

/etc/sysconfig/mouse has this little gem - 

Seems that /etc/X11/XF86Config also had the doubled "/dev//dev" problem.

Manually fixing /etc/sysconfig/gpm, /etc/sysconfig/mouse, and
/etc/X11/XF86Config to point to /dev/input/mouse causes X to fail to
start - xf86OpenSerial fails to open /dev/input/mouse.

It's input/mice, actually.
